About the Exhibition:
Media captures much more information than it communicates explicitly. 

The content of print media, broadcast, and digital spaces builds landscapes of information in sometimes unintended, yet revealing ways. The necessity to sift through this information creates a space where the public experiences chance encounters with content that fall outside the lines of their intended searches. What happens when an article seems to align with a nearby advertisement, or a story is morphed through acts of translation between formats, or when information is expanded, disputed, or disrupted by live commentary, annotation, and editing? 

Given this shifting terrain, what are our responsibilities as consumers, curators, as sculptors of reality?
